Maybe it's the desert skyline or glamorous palm tree landscape, but there's something about the Palm Spring's atmosphere that inspires some of the chicest warm-weather ensembles — especially around festival time. This is especially evident at the yearly ZOEasis party in the desert. In addition to the chic themes (this year's was inspired by the stunning Italian Riviera), attendees come dressed to the nines in their festival best — and this year's ZOEasis was no different.
Yes, the A-list attendees at the annual desert bash came to see and be seen, donning some of the season's biggest trends. From fanciful ruffles and fluorescent slip dresses to airy floral-prints and summer-centric linen slacks, no stylish stone was left unturned. The beauty of desert fashion (and festival fashion, for the most part) is that the heat and sandy surroundings call for looks that are light, effortless, and breathable. These attributes were certainly present at ZOEasis, as attendees indulged in some quintessential Palm Springs style.
Possibly the most notable and memorable look of the night came from Victoria Justice, who went full festival glam in an emerald slip dress by Rachel Zoe Collection. While the gown's vibrant jewel tone and fringed hem did not go unnoticed, it was the actor's complementary butterfly hair accessories that wrapped the look up flawlessly. "Festival season allows you to just be bold and go crazy with accessories and layered jewelry," explains Justice. "You get to pull out the special pieces in your closet, which I love!"
Not to be outshone, actor Kiernan Shipka also opted for a Rachel Zoe creation. The Netflix star went with a black eyelet floor-length frock that featured ruffled sleeves and a chic plunging neckline. Her pal and fellow actor Alisha Boe also opted for a noir ensemble. The 22-year-old strolled in in a fitted sleeveless mini with beautiful buttoned detailing down the front that read very "desert chic."
